Multiple experimental evidence now indicates that several traits of human personality, among which temperament, social behavior, sexual preference and drug addiction are, in great part, inherited. Molecular genetics is moving to define which genetic variations are responsible for these traits and to precisely define their causative role. The patent genetic component of our behavior and our personal choices has inevitable ethical, moral and social consequences.
